14 Steps To Survive The Snowpocalypse In Virginia

As I write this, Virginia is experiencing Snowpocalypse 2016….also known as “Snowmageddon” and “Winter Storm Jonas.” While “Winter Storm Jonas” seems like a bit of a formal title, there is no doubt that this storm is one for the record books.

Snow is not something we’re unfamiliar in Virginia. But, fortunately for us, it’s also not something that we deal with more than a few months out of the year. Unlike our friends to the north, who are used to two feet of snow and don’t blink when the forecast calls for a blizzard, we tend to get our snow, like most of our seasons, in moderation. So, a snow of this proportion is worthy of some attention. And in case you are not a northern transplant, here are a few tips that we thought might be useful for surviving a storm like our pal “Jonas.”

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
